Which of the Ivies and MIT and Stanford and other top schools care least about GPA's? My grades are not stellar, so I;m trying to find out which of the top schools in the country place less weight on GPA?

i heard stanford doesn't take GPA into account as much as other top schools, any truth to this?

Honestly GPA (and clss rank) matter a lot at the top schools. However, personally I know Cornell took a truly brilliant computer type with less than steller grades (and of course athletes etc). Grades will matter a lot if you don't have a significant hook. If the less than stllar grades were in 9th grade that would help a lot especially at Stanford which doesn't look at 9th grade. You need to give us more info on what you do have if it is not grades (is non stellar a 3.8 in toughest schedule or a 3.5).

well i have around a 3.8 in a pretty tough curriculum. its not the hardest but its close. unfortunately, my GPA has a downwards trend, with a B+ in BC Calc 1st semster junior year and a solid B in BC Calc 2nd semester of junior year.

that 3.8 is unweighted by the way...our school doesn't rank or have GPA's, so we have no weighting system.

Duke considers 9th grade but is more concerned with 10-12, especially 11th grade.
